John Ellis, a composer from Manchester in England, has produced a corpus of organ music that is both thoroughly in the tradition of British cathedral and liturgical music while developing an individual voice. Here Ronald Frost, organist of St. Ann’s Church, Manchester, plays that fine instrument. A second volume of Ellis works, played by Robin Walker, is in progress.
 

“The disc opens with a very fine ‘Allegro and Pasasacaglia’. This truly is organists’ music.. Ronald Frost [is] superb and committed throughout. I have much enjoyed exploring John Ellis’s organ music... it has charm, it is practical and is suitable for recital work. The music is beautifully performed, recorded and annotated. Even for non-organists it would be well worth searching out.”
